The Christmas festivities got off to an early start on Saturday morning with Merry Meridian's annual Breakfast with Santa,...
Dozens of children dropped by St. Paul Episcopal Church in downtown Meridian to give Santa their Christmas wish list. Kids were also able to have their picture made with Santa and have their face painted and of course, eat breakfast.
"Well, we're just happy to see all the good boys and girls this year and hope they're having a good christmas here soon," Santa said.
Those who attended were asked to bring a toy to donate to needy children in the area.
